Tango Practice with Jarrod Clark and Victoria Regan
In a recent coaching session with the expressive and beautiful Victoria Regan Jarrod and I addressed my challenge of achieving balance, an independent frame and artistry in movement on a level beyond my previous novice dancing. My desire to present movement to an audience that tells an emotional story runs up against the realities of the limitations of my 62 yr old body and decades of physical self consciousness.
The beauty of dance instruction, lies in the breakdown of what appears to be a single flowing movement into a coherent set of building blocks of stance, alignment, footwork, gaze, and strength. Eventually, the dancer's body remembers each adjustment and what was once awkward becomes natural.The viewer sees unity between partners, and is moved by the drama and music of tango-unaware of the many repetitive hours of practice of single movements within the dance.
